They record a zombie deer in the garden of a house in the United States, will the infection started to humans?

A few days ago we wrote how the “zombie deer virus”  has become a real problem in the United States, since it has spread to 24 states and two Canadian provinces, and experts warn that it is spreading to humans, being a potential risk too urgent to ignore. In fact, the “zombie deer virus” is called the Chronic Attrition Disease (also known as Chronic Wasting Disease or CWD).

The symptoms of this disease is that deer, elk, reindeer, and deer quickly lose weight, coordination and become aggressive; in other words, they become zombies. At the moment there have been no cases of CWD in humans, although experts are sure that we will see cases in the coming months. However, scientists do not know what kind of effects the “zombie deer virus” will have on people. For its part, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, for its acronym in English), has acknowledged that the CWD could be more widespread than is believed. Therefore, they recommend that hunters do not shoot or manipulate deer meat that has strange behavior.

So far it was a warning about a possible infection. But in the last hours, they have begun to spread videos that show how the first zombie deer approach populated areas.

The zombie deer

A zombie deer has been recorded in the garden of a person, which has caused panic in social networks to consider that the images show how the CWD is spreading to humans. In the video, posted on the profile of a person named Javonte Watson , you can see a deer in a garden at night. But the animal has large red bumps all over its body, especially on the face. The person who records is surprised by the state of the deer while eating.

“This is a zombie deer that is alone in Cleveland, does anyone explain this?” Says Watson.

When the deer looks at the person without fear, you can see even larger bulges on their other side, including a huge one hanging below the mammal’s mouth. It must be said that this video was shared on social networks last year, although this has not prevented the great impact it has had now, especially after the warning about the spread “zombie virus of the deer” to humans.Without a doubt, the terrifying images have provoked thousands of comments, with users assuring that this is the evidence that fiction surpasses reality. In addition, it has been inevitable the similarity with the South Korean film “Train to Busan (Train to Busan)”, where at the beginning you can see a zombie deer. There have also been many who say that the CWD is a disease created in a laboratory to eradicate part of the population.

Reality surpasses fiction

The CDC warning that the CWD may be more widespread than is believed, has made conspiracy theorists begin to ensure that the US government is aware that we are facing an imminent “zombie apocalypse”. Moreover, they claim that the recent declaration of national emergency by order Donald Trump, which is supposedly an attempt to build its border wall, is actually the first stage of containment in the face of the imminent threat.

As we already published in Esoteric and Paranormal World, the US Department of Defense prepared a strategy to combat a more than possible zombie apocalypse. The plan, called  “CONOP 8888”, is a document established in three parts. The first step is to maintain a defensive plan to protect humanity from the zombies, which would be this plan; the second step would be to establish procedures to eradicate the threat, the national emergency of Trump; and the third step will be to restore society through martial law.

It seems that the case in Cleveland would be the definitive evidence of what many scientists have been warning for years. Researchers at Kent State University in Ohio said in 2015 how a pandemic of this kind could spread around the world and the devastating effects on humanity. And wounded up to this point, it may be necessary to heed the recommendations of the scientific community, that if a zombie apocalypse occurs it will have to go towards the Rocky Mountains, located in the western sector of North America.

Researchers from Cornell University believe that less populated or rural areas  “could resist for at least a month”  while the zombie apocalypse lasts. It is true that there are many unanswered questions about the disease of the zombie deer, but as scientists have said, we will have to wait to see the effects on humans, although it may be too late.

What do you think about the Cleveland zombie deer? Is it the first step to the real zombie apocalypse?

Into the World of Doomsday Preppers with Author Tea Krulos

The End is near…right? For some, doomsday is right around the corner and they’re going to great lengths to be prepared.

Apocalypse Any Day Now author Tea Kurlos
Freelance journalist Tea Krulos prepping for doomsday

When Tea Krulos decides to write about a particular topic he finds fascinating, he gets out into the wilderness and immerses himself in it. Whether it’s breaking up a dangerous fight on the streets of Seattle with real life superhero Phoenix Jones for Heroes in the Night, or fending off aggressive wildlife while tracking Bigfoot with Monster Hunters, he takes a few risks to experience the curious inner workings of some obscure subcultures.

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to catch Tea at a local comic shop called Crimson Cowl (owned by superheroes The Watchman and Crimson Crusader) where he discussed his experiences while researching his new book Apocalypse Any Day Now. The danger may not have been immediately present this time as Tea packed up and bugged out into the world of doomsday preppers, but it seems as though the paranoia was palpable.

Tea’s journey took him from the luxury bunkers built in an abandoned missile silo beneath the surface of the Kansas prairie, into the woods with a group that teaches disaster preparedness and survival skills under the guise of a zombie apocalypse, and out into the desolate Mojave Desert for the post-apocalyptic party known as Wasteland Weekend.

If you’ve been following Cult of Weird on the cesspool that is social media for a while, you may have noticed one of my favorite pass times is to track the latest end-of-the-world predictions and take a show of hands the following day to see who survived.

So far we’ve all squeaked by unscathed.

Be it a Biblical Armageddon, natural disaster, nuclear war, or the FEMA camps of a police state as conspiracy theorists are fond of preaching, there are some who believe there is a constant looming threat to humanity. Something set to wipe out civilization as we know it. And they’ll be ready.

Who knows. Maybe the end is near.

Will you be prepared…when it’s time for the Mad Max-themed swimsuit contest?

This “Peeling” Tectonic Plate Could Cause Catastrophic Earthquakes

Drifting Apart

The edge of a tectonic plate, one of the massive shelves of crust that carry the continents and ocean’s floor, is splitting right down the middle.

Scientists started to study the plate, located off the coast of Portugal, after it caused an unexpected earthquake and tsunami in 1969. They now suspect that they’re witnessing the birth of a new subduction zone, according to National Geographic, which is the point at which two plates collide and grind against each other, causing powerful earthquakes.

Drop By Drop

University of Lisbon marine geologist João Duarte suspects the plate began to split down the middle after water leaked through a heavily-fractured upper layer. But Duarte’s work hasn’t yet gone through peer review or been accepted by an academic journal, so it’s possible that his origin story for new subduction zones won’t hold water.

“It’s one of the biggest unsolved problems in plate tectonics,” Duarte told NatGeo.

Closing The Gap

Some models of plate tectonics, the gradual movement of plates around the globe, suggest that Canada and Europe may gradually migrate towards each other.

If Duarte’s research is correct and the plate beneath Portugal is splitting, then that would be the first step toward a shrunken Atlantic Ocean that brings the two together, leaving a trail of powerful earthquakes in its wake.

Threat from an Earth-Altering Asteroid Strike is REAL, Warns NASA Chief

The NASA chief’s speech comes on the heels of the space agency’s announcement that it would conduct an asteroid impact simulation to identify critical aspects of disaster response in the event of such a cataclysmic scenario.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine took the stage of this year’s Planetary Defence Conference on Monday to issue a stark warning: people should be ready for a major threat from a killer asteroid that could collide with Earth if our planet is not better protected.

“We have to use our systems, use our capabilities to ultimately get a lot more data, and we have to do it faster. We know for a fact that the dinosaurs did not have a space programme. But we do, and we need to use it”, he said.

Bridenstine continued by saying that normally the idea of a giant interstellar object smashing into Earth is met with a “giggle factor”, but people should not have that false sense of security somehow imposed on them by a myriad of themed Hollywood blockbusters.

“We have to make sure that people understand that this is not about Hollywood, it’s not about the movies. This is about ultimately protecting the only planet we know, right now, to host life and that is the planet Earth”, the scientist added.

NASA’s chief made a reference to a 65-foot (20-metre) meteor that exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in February 2013, just 14 miles above the Earth’s surface.

The flaming meteorite crashed with a massive boom, blowing out windows, damaging thousands of buildings in the area and injuring about 1,500 people, mostly from broken glass.

“These events are not rare. They happen”, he maintained.

Last week, NASA announced that it had teamed up with international partners to perform a “tabletop exercise” on how to handle a hypothetical asteroid on a collision course with Earth.

“These exercises have really helped us in the planetary defence community to understand what our colleagues on the disaster management side need to know. This exercise will help us develop more effective communications with each other and with our governments”, NASA’s Planetary Defence Officer Lindley Johnson said.

Aside from the aforementioned plans, NASA is getting ready for its first spacecraft impact asteroid redirect mission, dubbed “Double Asteroid Redirection Test” (DART), which is set for June 2021.
